Required courses for this certificate include:
The Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering Security is relevant for professionals with undergraduate technical degrees or with advanced degrees in other fields who wish to complement their existing knowledge and skills base with training in cybersecurity from a systems engineering and architecture perspective. The program integrates topics in security requirements, secure system architecture, security system engineering, technology governance, and information assurance in order to provide a systems perspective on security issues. These issues span the lifecycle of secure systems, and are encountered via both classroom instruction and hands-on assignments intended to accelerate the student experience in the field of systems security. The four certificate courses provide the solid body of knowledge required to develop sound designs for secure systems, as well as to assess system security architecture. It will also be a good choice for individuals who may have interest in the Master of Science degree in Systems Engineering Security, but would like to get an introduction to the field prior to signing up for a full Masters degree program. The students who will seek this certificate are government and industry technology implementation professionals in job functions that range from software engineering to enterprise architecture and governance.
